Pike Pine apartment description

Live like a Seattleite in one of our privately owned one bedroom urban condominiums in the heart of downtown Seattle. Walkscore.com rates our location a “walker’s paradise” with a 96 out of 100 walkability score. Our location, next to the Washington State Convention Center, 8 blocks from the Pike Place Market and near all major medical facilities (ie. Virginia Mason, Swedish Hospital, Polyclinic, Harborview Medical Center, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center) is ideal whether you are staying in Seattle for business, vacation or medical treatment. Each of our one bedroom condos have a king bed in the bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room. We also manage several two bedroom condos and a large one bedroom penthouse condo which will sleep up to six people if you need a larger property.
Whether planning a short term or extended stay in this magnificent city, Seattle Suites is here to help you make your visit a memorable one.

The Pike/Pine Corridor, recently call ”Sesame Street for Grownups” by Seattle Met magazine, has become one of Seattle’s most popular and trendy downtown neighborhoods. It is an eclectic mix of businesses, boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, theaters and pubs. From the Elektra head west on Pike and you will be in the middle of all that downtown has to offer. Or stroll east up Pike to discover true Seattle neighborhood culture. Check out the kitschy shops and pick up a great read at the Elliott Bay bookstore before lunching at Boom Noodle or other favorite neighborhood restaurant. Don’t forget to save room for dessert at Cupcake Royal on your way back home. Living at the Elektra you will be steps from all the usual Seattle landmarks while immersing yourself in our urban chic Seattle culture.

                      Location

                      Within walking distance of all major downtown Seattle attractions including the Pike Place Market, Art Museum, shopping, theaters, restaurants, sports stadiums, pioneer square, waterfront, aquarium, space needle, Experience Music Project, Chihuly Museum as well as major medical centers and charming boutique neighborhoods.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: Becki Snellenberg, Owner and Manager since 1998. Travelling internationally for 16 years as a management consultant with Microsoft I learned how challenging business travel can be. My best experiences were when I stayed in furnished apartments rather than hotels. I was glad to give up hotel services to stay in a homelike environment with a full kitchen and experience living like a local, particularly when my family travelled with me. After adopting two more children I decided it was time to give up the travelling life and stay closer to home. Starting up this business was just a natural for me. I look forward to helping you make your stay in Seattle a memorable one.

                      Why the Owner Chose Pike Pine:
                      Fabulous location in the heart of downtown. We bought here because we were impressed by the style of a 1940's building which was updated to condos in the 1990's. The updates were tastefully done while retaining much of the charm of the era. The Elektra Homeowners' CC&R's specifically allow for rentals of 3 days or more making this a great place to buy for owners who wanted to keep a second home in the city, or who find that they need to travel extensively in their profession and have their units empty much of the time. These are the owners we represent. Our owners invest a lot of personal care into maintaining their units because they want to feel as if they are welcoming guests into their own home - which is exactly what they are doing. We have so enjoyed hosting people from all over the country and the world coming to Seattle for temporary work, for relocation, to attend conventions, for medical treatment, to visit family or just to experience this fabulous city and all that it has to offer

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Walking distance to theater, restaurants, shopping, Pike Place Market, Waterfront, Museums, nightlife. Tucked into a quiet side street next to the Convention Center, we escape much of the ordinary noise and street traffic you would find in a downtown area, yet are steps from all the life, vibrancy and activity that downtown has to offer. The trendy Pike Pine neighborhood is one of the most up and coming neighborhoods in Seattle. Our guests also enjoy the convenience of nearby grocery stores, restaurants and shops of any small neighborhood. For those coming to town to access some of the finest medical facilities in the country, we are also very close. We are two blocks from Virginia Mason and easy walking distance to Swedish and Harborview hospitals.
